Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook

1 Answer

Video/screen issue When I leave my laptop on for any extended time, from 10 minutes or longer, the screen freezes, goes black, and won't respond. When I manually shut down, and power back up, the screen is split into 6 segments of what would be normal, except lines are running through it all. I've reset my drivers, ran startup repair, lowered settings, raised them, etc. Sometimes, it will run for ok again for awhile, but it always happens again. I'm using NVIDIA drivers.

SAVE your important stuff NOW and,
FORMATT this Machine,

I see many issues but to format and reinstall a new fresh install will quickly tell you if the issue was the graphic drivers or the machine settings because of defaults conflicting with other softwares,
or anything else,
The formatt will take minutes and the OS reinstall could be about 30 minutes depending on the OS version,

Is it doing your head in yet ???

But wait theres more,

Don't wait till its important and its vital that it works right now,
And Because it lets you down,etc......

Back up your stuff """"""AND """""" FORMAT

OR

When it fails then formatt it,
Its already useless when you can't use the functions it was designed for but much more fun if you can recycle the info and reuse the space again and again.

Sounds like a VIRUSS ???Format will eliminate this possiblity.

Ok I have covered a couple of issues,
yes there are more,
so a very quick fix is GOOD.

Phew,I got a headacxhe just thinking about it,lol

Good luck , hope this helps, Please rate me,Thanks

Won't turn on


You may have hard drive issues or corrupted window files, remove hardware and reseat it back in position, sometimes this will correct the problem, next sub out the memory one at a time, causes a lot of strange symptoms. If none of these works, use the recovery disc "if you made one" The final option is a computer store to resolve the issues.

I have the HP Pavilion dv2890NR Artist Edition. recently the screen goes a bit fuzzy with a reddish pinkish color, then it goes black and totally unresponsive. i would turn it off and try to turn it back...


Hi I know the problem and solution,
your laptop was overheating right? the fans were quite loud right? then this problem occured
it is what I call a Dead GPU and you are victim of Dust Build up on the heatsink after
more than 1 year of use.
to fix it, permanently it needs a new graphic chip replaced or "reballing"
people can offer you a temporary fix "reflow" which works for 1 month

Inspiron Core i5 Laptop. Error: Display driver stopped responding


Hi there!
You mentioned that's a 2 month old laptop,
From what i'm seeing here you should at least have 1 year of warranty with it if you purchased it online,
For the issue you have there,
Might want to specify what video card you have there.
For the drivers, go to support.dell.com then enter your service tag, make sure your select the right operating system, then you'll be able to see the drivers, update the video card driver and the BIOS,
If the problem persist go to nvidia and check your video card if they have released a new driver update,
Worst case scenario is replacing the video card.
Hope this helps!

Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop..the screen goes almost black after 5 minutes.


The screen goes black while in normal mode right? So try to boot in safe mode (power on then keep tapping F8 then select safe mode). Check if still happens in safe mode.

If screen does not goes black in safe mode it means there might be a software or driver causes problem when running in normal mode. You can try the following (update your anti virus software then run a full system scan, uninstall the video driver then download and install the latest one, uninstall any previous windows update or you can system restore to the time when it was working fine).

If the screen goes black even in safe mode they try connecting the laptop to an external monitor if still goes black, if yes then absolutely no issues with the LCD panel. You can try (uninstall and reinstall the video driver if still persist then this might end up replacing video card or motherboard, but before doing that update the BIOS first).

If does not goes black in ext monitor then the LCD panel might causes the problem. Reseat the LCD cable or inverter if you can.

There is a class action lawsuit currently being initiated against HP for this issue. The Complaint alleges that HP misrepresented and concealed material facts regarding certain laptops including a design defect, which causes the power jacks of the laptops to fail.
